if sequestration happens? do you think the economy slows down? >> well, it will slow -- by all estimates, it will slow the economy down somewhat. there are differences among economists as to how much. but it will, of course, be contractionary and therefore it will slow growth, but there are a number of other things that are going on in economy that are pro-growth, so it will have a negative impact but there are other pro-growth elements which can be very helpful. >> it sounds like you're not that worried. >> i am worried because it does cause concern that we can't agree on the kinds of rational policies to deal with our problems and we have to revert to something that no one really wants, but they can't reach an agreement on something positive to avoid this kind of thing. >> the good news is that this economy is growing, the u.s. economy. >> i think the u.s. economy is recovering. the job is recovering. the energy boom is helpful. the housing market has bottomed out and beginning to pick up. balance sheets, consumer balance sheetsz, business balance sheets are doing well and exports are

can never say it too many times. it means that no one sector, one segment of the economy should ever account for more than 20% of your portfolio. so if you own five stocks, only one could be a tech stock, only one a health care stock, only one a financial, only one can be an energy company only one an industrial and only one can be a food and beverage maker. what if you're not sure? always err on the side of caution. if two stocks trade together, if the underlying companies succeed or fail based on the same factors, then you're not diversified. an oil driller and oil producer, we often get those on wednesday, people think they're different. they're both part of the same sector. software and hardware, they're both techs, like it or not. i'm not doing this to be arbitrary or capricious or make it more difficult now to pick stocks. these aren't vague technicalities. when you get too concentrated in one area the moment something bad happens one to of those big stocks, you're going to want to throw yourself off a bridge because the losses will be enormous. imagine if you owned too many in
